Waze Map Editor (WME)

Waze uses 3 different servers to host the maps. Israel (IL) & North-Amerika (NA) have their own servers. The Rest Of World (ROW) has its own server. The BeNeLux maps are located on the ROW server, sometimes also called the INTL server.

To edit the map, you can do your thing in the Waze Map Editor (WME):

Waze Map Editor - Benelux Guides

If you want more information on how or why things are done, please read the following manuals:

Quick-Start Guide

What roadtype to use in what kind of situation? What segment gets a city- and/or streetname, or not? What do is meant with directions and locks?

Meer uitleg kun je hier terug vinden:


The Waze Map Editor lets you add landmarks. But, which landmarks to add, and what landmarks not to add? And, what about all the types of landmarks?

There´s a special BeNeLux Places page that explains when and how we do that in the BeNeLux.
